A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, 2016 MOVIE ADAPTATION
Synopsis: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved creaSons. The frolicking tale of
lovesick young aristocrats, energeSc but inept rusScs, and mischievous woodland spirits is a staple of stage
and screen. In the past, ﬁlmed adaptaSons have emphasized the play’s tradiSonal, Elizabethan qualiSes. This
project however is a fresh and stylish reinvenSon that takes an enSrely diﬀerent approach. Our story takes
place in present day Hollywood - a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving arSsts and
vaulSng pretenders all vie to get ahead. Hollywood is someSmes called “The Dream Factory,” and like the
world of Shakespeare’s Dream, it’s a place where fantasy and reality collide. In the tradiSon of Baz
Luhrmann’s rapturous 1996 reimagining of Romeo + Juliet, this modern vision breathes new life into a classic
tale. Combined with a cast of established and emerging stars, and a pulsing contemporary soundtrack, the
ﬁlm will appeal to ardent fans of the Bard as well as audiences discovering Shakespeare for the ﬁrst Sme.
